It’s been a turbulent year for Nick, who split from his wife-of-four-years Jessica Rose in 2016. The couple share a son, Eddie, two. In May this year, Nick told HELLO! of the split: "No matter how much you love someone, if you've burned some bridges, it's very difficult to rebuild them. I'll hold my hands up and say I got some things wrong, but I'll never stop caring for Jessica." He added: "She's the most beautiful person with the biggest heart and I regret very much some of the things that have happened and the fact we haven't been able to make it work.
